Shopping for kids? Ask a few questions

If you’re shopping for a younger student, consider a few things while you’re shopping, such as:

  • Eye exam: Start with an eye exam and get an accurate prescription.  Make sure your child’s eyes are healthy and you’re not wasting money on an outdated prescription, then shop for frames.
  • Frame material: Kids have different needs in terms of frame strength and flexibility, as well as weight and cost.
  • Sports/activities: Don’t forget about prescription sport and/or sunglasses! If your child is active in sports, he or she will also need protection for the court or field.
  • Warranties: Ask about warranties on frames and lenses. Torn between two pairs? Ask how the warranties compare!
